I presume that you want to contain dust with skirting, not eliminate it. To do this a system approach is best. That is, do not just look at the skirting -- but examine chuite design, drop height, impact system (idlers, slider bed, combination, etc.), dust shields, venting, etc.
I suggest that you contact Martin Engineering for design concepts at www.martin-eng.com or companies such as ContiTech, Rema, or Pang,. The last three companies all manufacture high quality skirting material.
If you have experience rapid skirting wear, it could be due to your skirting arrngement, or it could be due to the use of an inferior skirting rubber.
Feel free to contact me if you need to discuss particulars.
